The Educated Mind & Body 
(Season 01 / Episode 03)

Ron Bond
Ron Bond grew up in Philadelphia during it's years as a thriving boomtown and manufacturing hub. We discuss him sharing a room with his six brothers as they grew up in Chester, PA. We also discuss a series of connected events that lead to his career in recreation management for the City of Philadelphia, FIFA and the University of Pennsylvania.

The Conversation

Ron is now retired and has a beautiful family, including grandchildren. He shared a concept that can be paraphrased as...

"Life is like riding a train — you have a destination in mind when you board. But as you take your trip, you meet people you didn’t plan to. You meet interesting people that change you. This can make you rethink your original destination. People on that train will help you, and you will help them. But you have to be ‘helpable’ and ready to help."
